The new RF609 Wi-Fi is a rechargeable battery-powered device supplied as a complete system with mains charger, cables, PC software and a detailed operation manual. The device is available in two measurement versions allowing a range of inner diameter measurements to be made: 9 to 19 mm or 16 to 48 mm diameter with maximum bore length of 139 and 143 mm respectively. Both probes feature the 48 mm diameter main controller, battery and Wi-Fi housing with an extended shaft that houses the laser triangulation sensor scanning head. A 16 mm diameter shaft facilitates straightforward collet mounting on the CNC.
An uncomplicated set-up procedure includes software download and initial wired USB connection to interface the probe followed by a simple probe calibration routine that sets the probe rotation speed, calibration diameter and tolerance parameters.
The RF609 series is also available as a self-powered device with a built-in slip ring assembly for power input and data signal output. The ultra-compact probe head has been well-proven in special custom-made equipment developed by Riftek for specific component measurement – sometimes used in conjunction with linear and rotary translation positioners to allow, for instance, scanning pipes, bushes, stepped and tapered holes and tubes etc. The principle has also been applied to special debris inspection equipment for small diameter holes where traditional vision systems can be troublesome.
The new RF609 Wi-Fi series is part of Riftek’s comprehensive range of 2D laser scanners, laser triangulation sensors, speed and length sensors, railway and other measurement instrumentation systems. Ixthus Instrumentation works closely with Riftek and many other leading instrumentation component manufacturers to supply sensors, transducers and complete systems for the measurement of displacement, force, torque and vibration.
Ixthus works closely with leading global suppliers of non-contact sensing technologies as well as force, torque and vibration sensor and transducer manufacturers, providing a complete service with its knowledgeable technical staff available to solve customers‘ measurement problems – from the first enquiry to complete after-sales support.
